In a world of increasing economic integration, caused by among other things –technological developments and the liberalisation of capital and trade flows, the analysis of emerging countries constitutes an important topic in economics.
This skill training aims at linking a theoretical analysis to a 2 week trip in a particular emerging country.
Prior to the trip, students should define economic questions associated to the visiting country. It could concern for example the strategy of development, the financial structure, the stabilisation policies, etc…
During the trip, under the supervision of a staff, member discussions with experts working in government institutions, investment banks, international organisation and large firms are organised in order to shed new light on the topics.
After the trip, students will deliver a 10-20 pages paper on the topic, where theoretical and practical views are confronted. The papers will be written and presented by groups of 3-4 students.
For information, problems or questions during the course period, you may contact the coordinator.
